Alicia Keys may have not snagged any gramophones at this year’s Grammy’s but they are honoring her in a different way.
According to reports, the “It’s On Again” singer is being honored at their Grammy’s On The Hill Awards ceremony on Apr. 15th in Washington. D.C at Hamilton Live. The native New Yorker is being presented with the Recording Artists’ Coalition Award for her musical influence and philanthropic accomplishments.
“We know that she will bring the same dedication to creators’ rights as she does to her global philanthropic efforts,” said Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow.
She’s also a founding member of The Academy’s new GRAMMY Creators Alliance.
Keys is slated to have a new album drop this year that will focus more on social issues.
“With this album, I find I have much more I want to talk about”, she told WWD last year. “This album is more about the concept, the thought I’m trying to get across, where in the past it’s been more about the melody. This time it’s more about what we’re going through as human beings.”
